    Hi Sepid, and welcome.

    You have a CoolWebSearch infection. Could you please download, unzip, and run CWShredder.exe by pressing the *Fix* button (not just the scan button). Follow the instructions as prompted.

    Then reboot your computer and post a new log here to be checked. There still may be some entries left that needs fixing.

    Regards,

    snap

    Hi Sepid,

    Your log is clean now. :) Good work!

    I would recommend uninstalling SpyHunter though. It has a poor detection rate and will produce many false-positives It also charges to remove the spyware it detects..
    Spybot Search&Destroy or Adaware are both freeware spyware detection and removal programs that will do a far better job than SpyHunter. They both have excellent support forums too.

    If you choose to remove SpyHunter, you can fix the O4 line in HijackThis (same procedure as before with ALL browsers and windows closed)
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SpyHunter] C:\PROGRAM FILES\SPYHUNTER\SPYHUNTER.exe

    Then remove it through the Add/Remove Programs, and delete the folder after a reboot.

    To download Adaware or Spybot Search&Destroy, please see this link: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=15913

    You should purge your old Restore Points of any infection that would have been backed up in them. To do this, see: System Restore. Then after you have rebooted your computer, go back and set a new Restore Point.

    To help keep your system clean, these are also freeware programs that we recommend:

    SpywareBlaster - will protect you from all spy/foistware in it's database by blocking installation of their ActiveX objects.
    SpywareGuard - provides a degree of real-time protection against spyware that is a great addition to SpywareBlaster's protection method.
    IE-Spyad - will put a list of bad domains and sites into the Restricted Site Zone of your IE Browser. This will help to protect IE and prevent those drive-by downloads, browser hijacking, ActiveX, Java, popups, cookies, etc, from compromising your computer while you surf:

    Also, go to Microsoft's Update Site and download and install ALL Critical Updates listed for XP and IE6.

    Regards,

    snap
